York Canoe Club (Y.C.C )

On the water and off, YCC is one of the liveliest and best kayak clubs in the country. But you don’t have take our word for it – we’ll admit to being just a tiny bit biased.

Take a look around this site, or better still come and join us in person and find out for yourself!

Weekends and holidays are serious playtime and YCC members make the most of them. Club trips are organised throughout the year. We paddle all over England, Wales and Scotland - some of our ‘regulars’ are the Upper Tees, the Kent, the Lune and the Wharfe, but why stop there? Our more advanced paddlers are spoilt for choice on a wet weekend in winter, with the Dales, Lake District and North Wales all in striking distance for a day of adrenaline fuelled entertainment. Out of season we’re regulars at Holme Pierrepont in Nottingham, Teesside, the Tryweryn and the Washburn and we have the pick of some of the finest surf beaches in the Northeast.

If all that sounds a bit run of the mill, how does the paddling abroad grab you? In recent years, YCC paddlers have ripped it up in France, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia, Canada, Turkey, the USA, Uganda and Zambia and Chile. We’ve even been known to dabble in spot of sea kayaking.

If you need any more information why not catch us at the pool / river or in the pub every Wednesday night. Alternatively you can email us at [email protected]
